Predictive text is rubbish.... number of times I have to spell a word and save it, only to have to do so the next time is ridiculous. Found the ring tones limited and downloads do not sound too good on it. Limited skin colours. Good points are length of text you can send, slide design and graphics.
i just bought the d500 and it is by far a better phone then my last one the nokia 6111.
good phone..but can anyone tell me how i can install games to my samsung d500 from my PC. i have tried by using the softpick software but i was not able to do it & its not a free software also.
frankly speaking, if we campare d500 with all other sets in market it is the best
Honestly, do not try them. Do not even think about it. I've owned a Samsung D500.. When I got it I thought it was brilliant. The bottom line is their phones are cheap Korean merchandise with a top dollar price tag.
My D500 for example.. About 9 months of use and the sliding mechanism has gone to hell. It's jerky and takes effort to actually push back into place. I used a brand new one last week and when I felt the difference I was shocked at how much it had deteriorated.
Samsung plastic is also the most budget corner-cut material I've ever used. It's so prone to scratches that I have more marks on my 9-month d500 than on the nokia 3310 I used for 3 years during highschool. Now that's saying something.
Samsung screens likewise are complete junk. They have very poor refresh rates and if you stare carefully at them you'll notice they fade in and out of minor blurs.. Maybe not an issue to some but compared to a quality Motorola screen they're far from solid. Also the quality of the screen is about as low as the body of the phone.
Now, if you don't believe a word I've said then fine. But in all honesty, I recommend to everyone, if you are the type of person who wants to get good long use out of your phone then you should stay clear of Samsung. If you're the type of person who has a new phone every 3 months on the other hand, they're perfect for you.
I'll leave you with this last note..
In the OFFICIAL SAMSUNG WARRANTY fine print it says that damage to the phone due to 'Everyday wear and tear' and 'Excessive use' is not covered. I am not lying, look it up yourself. USING YOUR SAMSUNG PHONE VOIDS THE WARRANTY! How's that for a nice joke?
Can anyone tell me if there is a setting on the D500 that will keep the predictive text on all the time
this is a brilliant phone.i've had it for about a year now and it's held my tracks, pics etc decently...however, very recently, the screen goes a weird darkish purple shade after a while on standby (i've also noticed some multicoloured dots at the top edge of the screen when this happens; they then disappear when i switch off the phone and switch it back on again)...
i need to buy a new phone soon as my current handset is practically falling to pieces! I've decided that i'll try a samsung mobile instaed of another nokia. Could anyone tell me which would you consider to be the better phone, D500 or D600. Any advice would be greately appreciated. Please email me
please tell me what is better? D500 or E370 and why? In sound quallity of calls what is more clear and loud?
keeps getting bluetooth activation error and cannot pair phone with other devices. please help
I asked a staff member at vodafone today and they said if you want your pics from your phone to your computer then you should buy a bluetooth dongle which makes ur computer bluetooth and easy transfer.. could work with phone book, ringtones etc.
I just ordered this phone and I cant wait till it gets here.
I'll be sure to post up my initial thoughts.

@Marcus - Mobile phone insurance will not cover you for a warranty issue or wear and tear. You should pursue the warranty through your provider, rather than direct to Samsung, this way they may be more willing to help you, if you are within the year's warranty
you need a USB data cable, its an optional extra. The USB cable plug is located on the right hand side of the phone, its a little black thing that slides down. hope this helps
